  1. I think everyone should say your opinion under that title. I want a more modern and minimal interface first.
  2. Hi Everyone, I would first like to say that I love Evernote. Everything about it has been super helpful for my life, my work and my family. I am totally paperless and Evernote has allowed me to clear my head and focus. I would also like to say that I am currently a beta tester for all things Evernote, including Mac, Windows, iOS and Scannable. Lately, I have been reading plenty of articles talking about how Evernote is going down the tubes and is a horrible experience. (http://chambersdaily.com/bradleychambers/2015/10/18/learning-to-leave-evernote) People are leaving Evernote for services like OneNote and Apple Notes. With everybody talking bad about Evernote and all of the recent changes within the company structure (new CEO & a ton of layoffs) I have been worrying about the future of my Evernote and my lifestyle therefore I have been trying out all of Evernote's competitors just in case we hear one day soon that the service will be shutting down. I understand from a lot of the outward facing people at Evernote that they are hard at work re-building a lot of the infrastructure and trying to focus the product. I would really like some sort of sign that the company and my life's workflow won't suddenly end in the future. What are your thoughts? Are we all in the same boat? Thanks Nick
  3. I have been an Evernote Premium member for 2 and a half years, and recently I noted some changes of this application. Let say Evernote Food, in which I used to used almost every day, had uploading issues since iOS 8. The staff just said they are looking into the problems and have not had any bug fix update for almost two months, i.e. the app has become useless. Most ridiculously, Evernote didn't further communicate with us here, didn't say how they will treat the app (say shutting down Evernote Food) but they spoke it to media instead... (see here: The company will also stop investing in existing consumer products, including Evernote Food.) Hello is another example however the feature has already been replaced by its own Evernote app. I understand that the company has to earn money, and at least, they have to look for funding more effectively to enhance sustainability. Just like Google, in which the company has a lot of products, but in one day they stop some applications... But the problem is, some services in Evernote have been gone so quietly. Some users paid for it but may not feel secure when using Evernote. I like Evernote and think it's not only a note-taking app, but a space for me to figure out what I should do in the future. Thus I had more and more memories in the Evernote cloud. I know that Evernote will change continuously, but at the same time begin to feel insecure about its series of policies, especially something without being told... Maybe Evernote will one day give up the consumer market and just focus on the business one...
  4. Current solutionsDepending on the platform (operatings system), the native Evernote application has a different set of features which currently doesn't include handwriting on iOS devices.At the moment the Adonit Jot Script Pen seems to be the most useable pen for handwriting input on an iOS device and is actively supported byEvernotes own PenultimateGoodNotesNoteshelfand a few others... ChallengesThe biggest challenges areAccurate capture of the pentip locationExcellent palm recognition (palm rejection) and the prevention of it interfering with the stylus inputClean and easy interface, but feature rich and customizeableWriting experienceWhat you can do with and how and where you further can use your handwritten notes Features and functions wish list for the perfect appFrom crawling through forums, websites and video posts users are craving for and want an application and hardware with the following featuresFull two way synchronization with EvernoteClean and beautful desgin (currently e.g. Penultimate looks better, but GoodNotes has the better functionality and experience; except it doesn't sync with Evernote)Paper templates like in Penultimate. E.g. Meeting notes, music sheets (needs to support interactive features... see next point)Handwritten notes that support the Evernote feature of checklists, create reminders and additionally calendar events in 3rd party servicesE.g. you take notes in a meeting and have noted down a few points that need further attention later. It has to be possible to mark those (circle/highlight certain areas on your note) and turn them into checklist items, create a reminder and/or add calendar events (in whatever service the user uses... iOS/iCloud, Google, ...)Presentation modeShare editable notes with other usersAn advanced and precise stylus with long battery life and an easily replaceable battery (like the Jot Script) that ideally will work on devices across multiple platformsSimilarly to adding checklist items, reminders and events, it should be possible to tag whole notes or certain parts of notes for better searchability in Evernote. Those tags should be invisible by default and only visible with a switch turned onEasy export and sharing of notes as PDF (and e.g. JPG) via standard device ways (message, mail, ...)Alternatively/additionally storing the notes in Dropbox, Onedrive and the likeCustomizeable handwriting capture and auto advance when in Zoom modeI personally prefer the implementation in GoodNotes, but others might prefer the Penultimate way of automatic sideway scrolling of the paperFast access to basic writing tools (colour, thickness, erase)Geometric drawing assistant like in GoodNotes that helps to easily draw shapes and linesGood embedding of additional content (capture from camera, voice notes, photos from library, PDFs or other files from other apps on the device or in cloud storage, eventually Microsoft Visio Stencils)Automatic backup of settingsWhen writing music sheets, sound preview of drawn musical notes... Why I wrote this? A couple of days I got my Jot Script and started to try out first Penultimate and was disappointed, then spent some money on the Appstore for the other apps and was disappointed by the overall functionality of the combined solution. Was hoping to make my life easier, especially at work, but what's out there just doesn't do that yet...
  5. "Apps as a concept don't make a whole lot of sense anymore" So saith Phil Libin, Evernote CEO, at a meeting of the "f.ounders", an annual private gathering of tech company leaders held at the NASDAQ Stock Market in New York Thursday, according to a CNN Money report. He also pronounced that the phrase "the Internet of Things" is "the worst and most obnoxious name ever." Clearly I'm not in Mr. Lilbin's league, but I think he is dead wrong, on both counts. Perhaps he is so brillilant and so far ahead of his time that I just can't get it, but I think we, the worldwide computing user community, will be referring to "Apps" for many years to come. Apps An "App" is simply a convient term to refer to a focused collection of functions and/or services that we might need to use at any moment in time. Even with this categorization of computing, it is still sometimes overwhelming to find the "App" I need on my iPhone/iPad, or even on my Mac. If the notion of "Apps" is done away with, how would we quickly and easily find/select what we want to do? I think when Apple came up with "there's an app for that", they were clearly on the right track. The Internet of Things I have no idea why Mr. Libin would have such strong objection to this name/title. He doesn't disagree with what it means, he just doesn't like the name. A rose by any other name ... Well, I kinda like it. Maybe he would like the version coined by Ciso, or at least adopted by and made popular by Cisco: Internet of Everything. I see it referred to a lot in the technology press/news/discussions. The Final Zinger! And then he combines his thoughts together in a strange way. "The Internet of Things will be so huge, Libin said, that it will eventually make apps obsolete (yes, even Evernote)." Well, Mr. Libin has said many times that Evernote is a 100-year company. Perhaps he is speaking of a time near then end of this 100 years. Who knows?
  6. I think Evernote is the best information collection solution around, but their distance to the users doesn't make me that huge fan who stays no matter what. I will probably switch as soon as another company is doing the same thing but also gives me the feeling that they are listening. With XX million users I understand that they can't listen to everyone, still I think they could try harder. Instead of making their main product bullet proof, they are acquiring other companies and releasing apps like "Hello" and “Food” It looks like they try to follow the same strategy as Apple and Google, kings within their segment and still have good products, but hopeless to confront with bugs, feature requests and road maps. Will one or more of them end up just like monsters like IBM, Microsoft and many others, growing away from their customers? Will soon Evernote have to buy trend analysis to find out where to go? Because when companies start to buy trend analysis, they prove that they have lost the contact with the customers and their segment, right? It is so hard to be a big company and listen to the little people. I can even be very specific: Why do the latest Windows update includes a new fancy way to process multiple notes, like save attachments, while the file attachment handling within the notes still have stupid bugs like copy & paste, or dragging. And Image rotating: excellent! But the whole text and image formatting is quite bad and not what you expect in 2012. Do they know their product well enough? Do they know their users well enough? To some extent, of course they do. But do the customers feel they do? I'm happy to hear from anyone, but hopefully some Evermore employers also can join in, so the customers can be saved from the guessing and speculation :-) Lars Kristian A
  7. Hi guys and Evernote Developers, I am a proud user of Evernote for its ease of use and its many practicalities. I have also tried many (and most) other outliner programs on mac, windows and web platforms to see how Evernote matches up and how it could be improved. While Evernote still comes out on top, I find it hard for it to compete with web programs in the area of data collection. I also find it lacking in some areas where it could be drawing new users. This is why I propose that Evernote take the transition into a program which lets users create and own their own personal internets. I say this as some programs like voodoo pad which I admire, let the user create their own personal wikis with automated creation of links as you type to pages with that name. I think this should be implemented into Evernote as a cool way to structure and organise your notes, but it could go further. Evernote could be the first outliner program to fully support the creation and modification of web pages internally. That is, full support of javascript, flash and all the other things that make the web work so that when an article is clipped from the internet, it works exactly the same in Evernote (some features to block the ads would be good though). I have heard users ask this before, so why not go all the way. Evernote should not only be able to run pages natively, but browse the web as well. This would be extremely useful for data collection if you could have the internet and the outliner in the same window! Also, to go with this would have to be a large search bar up the top (of course), bookmarks (of web pages and notes), a startup page (how about the new Evernote pin-up board acting also as a web quick start page) and the ability to assign a note or web page to be your startup page, viewing history and if possible extensions or the ability to use chrome extensions of something. Also, for the developers, some tools to modify the scripts on the page (including note xml) would be useful, like the tools bar and editor at the bottom of the chrome and safari web browsers. All these features can be implemented by using code from the open source Chromium browser. To appeal to the web developers, it would be great also if Evernote was a bit more like Coda - a great and very simple web coding program. Note XML and page HTML could be opened up in a page like this in a new tab if people choose, from a button in the developer tools at the bottom. Adding the variety of different languages which Coda supports could be left to 3rd party developers. I also love the buttons at the top to switch between modes. In Evernote it could be web page, source code, outliner, markup. About the last one - markup. This is something which I think Evernote lacks as a quick note tool. Some of the tools from Skitch should be implemented right into Evernote as well as more ability to manipulate images like resize them. Some simple mind mapping tools would also be very good. A feature which has been asked for by many users before is tabs. This would become a must in a web and wiki program. My suggestion is using Opera style tabs which enable the sorting of tabs into groups which stack on top of each other then expand sideways when clicked. This could be done automatically in groups accordion to the notebooks that notes are sorted in and the web pages just as normal tabs (people can sort these into groups themselves as they browse). This image also demonstrates Opera's quick look feature. I also like that feature in IE which lets you see a layout of all your open tabs in one window (but I won't open that can of worms) One final, final feature which I suggest would be useful (even though i'm sure there are countless others) is the ability to grab a tab or page and drag it to a section on the screen to divide the page into two like your can do on the desktop on a windows computer. This would just make comparing, referring to and collecting data from things a lot simpler even on windows than resizing the whole screen. I know the was a lot to take in, and I congratulate anyone who even read it all, but that is the way I think Evernote should progress in the future. You may have a conflicting vision or an idea to improve this one. If so, I would very much like to hear it.
